Happy New Year
January 1st is the perfect time to start fresh. It's not just a new month, but also a whole new year. Many people make New Year's Resolutions to celebrate this day. When I was a teenager, I used to make lots of resolutions. One year I resolved to paint my fingernails a different color every week. Once I wanted to take a picture to commemorate every (daily) event in my life. Sometimes I would tell myself that I was going to call my Grandma every week. One year a friend and I committed to doing a 'random act of kindness' every day. I'm not saying I failed, but generally by the middle of February my resolutions were long forgotten.
As I got older I stopped making such grand resolutions and started being more realistic in my ideas. This year my goal is to run a 5k at the end of March (better than I ran one in October). That gives me about 12 weeks to work on my running skills. Do you guys make New Year's Resolutions? What are they? How good will you be at carrying them out? If you need ideas I am sure there are other teens willing to share. And I recommend that you all call your grandmas!
